Charly was first thought to be a male but my parents took her to the vet to have her sexed and found out "he" was a "she". The original name was "Charlie" but was changed to "Charly". Nanday Conures are one of the loudest birds for a pet so anyone who wants a not-so-noisy bird don't get a conure. Charly definetly lives up to her breed !!
